My Students

My seventh grade class is a very excited and inquisitive group! They are always willing to learn and put forth effort in everything they do. They can make the school day fun every day of the week because of their love of learning. I strive to make learning as fun and realistic as possible to keep my students' love of learning alive. Any kind of topic that they find interesting, I try to build on in order to enhance their learning.

My Project

I need composition notebooks for my students to use for a financial unit we are going to be doing next month. The students will use these notebooks as an interactive notebook to keep up with their notes and research.

Learning to budget is a responsibility that all students need to learn!

My students will learn how to write checks, fill out a deposit slip, and budget their monthly paycheck. Their notebook will be used to keep up with their budget for the month. They will research cost of living and record all of their findings in their notebook. Having these composition notebooks will help my students to stay organized throughout the unit.
